Nothing Exciting…Just No Spark
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie gave it their best shot, but in the end, the romance between them was just gone, The spouses of more than three years took great pains to save their marriage before announcing their split on Friday, Jan. 10.
One source of conflict for the couple? “She felt he didn’t put enough effort into the relationship,” the singer, actress, 26, says of her former NHL player husband, 33. The pair tried counseling for 18 months, “but recently he wasn’t doing any of the things they’d worked on.”
In fact, he wasn’t doing much at all.. After being forced to retire from hockey because of a career-ending injury in 2012, Comrie’s ambition took a nosedive. “He never did anything!”
Ultimately, the parents of 22-month Luca realized “the spark was no longer there,” a third source explains. “They are better as friends.”
